Frugal Travel Guy reports that the $2500 per person cap on Presidential Coin orders has been lifted.
US Mint Deal is Going Wild
The cap has come off the US Mint deal on the Native American coins and I’m hearing some huge numbers of coin deliveries. One reader said he and his mom are getting 20K coins per week. I know of another that has deposited over $60K in coins.
Five minutes ago I just picked up the UPS box delivered with 2500 coins to meet the minimum spend on the new US Bank Flex Awards offer Katy got. That was enough for me.
How are you guys moving these large numbers of coins to and from the bank?
Katy and I live in small town America and have a banking relationship with our locally owned bank and a Chase branch downtown. It would be a huge hassle (remember that word?) moving large numbers around downtown without a wagon or something. And our small town local bank just drives them downtown to Chase where they send them back to the mint. They don’t want anymore.
Chime in and tell us how many branches you are depositing into? How many coins you are taking to the bank per load? What kind of grief the tellers are giving you?
Collectively if we can increase our numbers, the higher our rewards will be. I’ll share the successes here and the things to watch out for.
